Players such as Mattias Ohlund, Michal Rozsival, Dan Hamhuis, Roman Hamrlik and the aforementioned Henrik Tallinder are guys I would consider strong #2's, but wouldn't be the defensive leader on most squads around the NHL.



I guess you are correct in that regard. But then again, that's what separates the "legit #1's" from the rest, consistency.
I agree Tallinders a strong #2 but not a legit #1 D-man.

Buffalo Sabres beat writer asked Paul Hamilton:

"According to your pairings today, Is Tallinder not in your top 6?"

Ruff responds: "We haven't decided who is in our top 6 yet"

Thats where the speculation is right now. I don't think Buffalo dumps Tallinder, esp now when his value is low.

If his value is low.

Considering the affordability of his contract, Regier should be loathe to move him and leave them leaning no even more blueline youth. It's foolish on many levels....
