I am saying there is no way in hell that two players who in their best, statistic anomaly year can match Grabovski in a normal year, are carrying Grabovski.

Macarthur scored the same as last year, yes. But he was not the same player, and his play-making took a big drop. The chemistry dynamic was also lost, as Kulemin also fell off the face of the earth offensively, and the only other people Grabovski played with were rookies.

29 assists is not that bad, especially for a 2nd-liner who is not primarily a play-maker and is the main force on his line. And you don't need an assist to have an impact on a play.

I don't know how you can come to the conclusion that Grabovski is lost without Macarthur and Kulemin when he produces similarly with and without them.

And no, Kulemin is not the reason Grabovski is good defensively.
