Let's see. "How a captain deals with death is at least as important as how he deals with life." Let's take that and run with it.

Picard. One of his closest friends and primary crew members die. He sees a tiny hint that his friend's essence might have been stored in another body. He is overcome with hope to one day see his friend again.

Kirk. One of his closest friends and primary crew members die. He sees a tiny hint that his friend's essence might have been stored in another body. He steals a starship from Starfleet, sabotages the pursuing vessel, travels to a forbidden planet, kills some klingons, obtains the body of his friend, finds a way to bring his friend back to life, then, while on his way home, stops off in the twentieth century, saves the world, then comes home to get punished by getting a brand new starship to command.

I'd say Kirk.
