Yes, he's on the 4th line for 10 minutes a night. However...

Practices, training, traveling, team meetings, team meals, basically everything else is done with the team; that's how chemistry is built. Granlund's not sitting on the bench with blinders on, either. He's watching his team mates playing styles and tendencies. With his high hockey IQ (I hate that buzzword), his play will pick up eventually.
