Guy and John should swap places. The fanboi in me wants Guy and Kyle to be at the top and kick Hal's sorry ass down, but I'll let you have that one.
I would also point out one other thing: it's been stated repeatedly that willpower is the most important factor but not the only important factor. There's also concentration and creativity to consider. While I have no doubt Steve has the former covered, the latter I'd have serious doubts about. That being said, creativity is not that important (Kyle has it in spades, Hal not so much).
I'm not sure he can take a majority from Sinestro, and maybe even earlier. Unless people want to start showing me some really high end willpower feats from Cap, I'd have to defer to the proven commodities.

He would clear this Gauntlet with five days training. Again, his super solider serum also affects his mental capacity for combat. Think about the wars this guy has been through, the adversity, the cosmic wars with the Avengers- you are giving THIS guy a most versatile weapon. He would literally bring war to Superman and would be a bit more willing to use lethal force, although I don't think it would come to that.
I have no idea why some of you think it's sacrilege to say he would be superior to Hal. No disrespect to Hal, but he's not A) as accomplished a hero and b) it's not even fair, Cap is a SUPER HUMAN combatant.
I know what you said, I said he would be able to do it with only 5 days training. And there are no showings of him every being a GL, so....
My opinion is based on the traits of the character. Super strong will, super human combat skills, super human physical skills, ability to recall all information, super reaction, all of those things will be augmented by the ring.

Batman does actually have high end will power feats. He is pretty smart and really creative as well.
I don't remember if batman or GA was the one stated to be too cynical.
But Batman either with Green ring or Yellow ring have not performed up to par with the top GL's
I don't think Cap will do any better, the best and closest example I can think of that will resemble a Captain America GL will be Batman or Uncle Sam and none of them have performed very well with the ring. Uncle Sam seemed pretty good on paper but in the end he didn't deliver.
Thank You Prof. T.C McAbe, You are Superman!
