Agreed - Granlund is the only source of any real scoring chances. He's the only one generating any of them at all. Either he's skating the puck into scoring range or he's passing it to the others in scoring range (and they don't have the quickness themselves to do anything since they never seem to be expecting it at all).

It seems like his line is a one man line with the other two just going into corners and not doing much of anything to generate offense at all.

It seems as though he's on an offensive island as a result. He draws in all the defenders, and neither Cullen nor Setoguchi get into puck support position for him to dish to. Their zone time is nothing but cycling in the corners as a result.
