Actually that's exactly what happened, and it's not the first time Tallinder has been carried by a rookie.

I've watched Tallinder his entire career in Buffalo, he was excellent the first few years after the lockout when he was paired with Toni Lydman, but then around the end of 2008 he fell off the face of the Earth while Lydman continued to excel. He had an awful 2009, was carried by Myers in 2010, was awful the beginning of 2011 UNTIL Fayne was called up and then mysteriously got his act together, and blew donkey nuts the first 30 games this season.
