That bit makes me laugh. Like Hulk needs to be told to smash, or is capable of anything but smashing.

"And Hulk! Arrange and oversee CASEVAC."

While (the other Avengers) defeating the army saved the world (indirectly saving a few billion lives).

Despite what you say, he gave fast and effective orders to the team for containment "until we can close that portal." And wasn't about to send Widow on a fool's errand that she realistically wouldn't survive in order to attempt to close a portal that no one (not even her) was sure she could close.
Well the thing is, and I'm kind of a sociopath for saying it, I don't have that much an attachment to the people of New York in this film. If Pepper was one of the people in the bank, it'd have worked better.

So the end result that Steve rescues some people doesn't wow me because he doesn't do it in a wowing manner.

We also don't see a corelation between Cap's orders and the situation getting better. We don't see what happens to the cops and if Cap's orders made anything bettern.

Not to mention that ultimately, those people would've still been dead without the actions of Natasha and Tony.

It's just not enough.
