No, it is against the rules to be a goalie and be a captain. A goalie can be an assistant captain, but not a regular captain.

Is Brodeur the most overrated player ever?

i dont know about ever but he is a very overrated player. People dont realize that goalies in the nhl are mostly a product of their teams. if your on a good team then you have good stats and thus people call you great. if you watch brodeur he is a good goalie but not great, and to be honest recently he has been bad. in last years playoffs, a loss to the rangers, he put up maybe the worst performance by a goalie i have ever seen (respect to lalime). This year he was not as bad in the playoffs, but definitly played like a below average to bad starting nhl goalie.
