Imam Abu Hanifah - Weak in Ahaadeeth?

A simple question : was Imam Abu Hanifah weak in Ahaadeeth? and what do our scholars say regarding this?

I think the question is quite general and as knowledge is relative, it's quite difficult to establish who is well-grounded in Hadith and who is weak. For example X may have little if any knowledge in comparison with his contemporaries but a 'Hakim' in comparison to the ordinary layman.Perhaps you could say how does Imam Abu Hanifah measure in Hadith in comparison to the masters of Hadith like Ali Bin Al-Madini, Imam Bukhari and Ibn Uyaynah.

yes, that's very true; so i think the better question would be:

What do authorities such as the likes of Ali Bin Al-Madini, Imam Bukhari and Ibn Uyaynah have to say regarding Imam Abu Hanifah in terms of being a muhaddith?
And what have our scholars said in his defence?

The reason i am asking this question is that i came across an Arab brother (if you know what i mean) who was very eager to point out that the Imam was a weak narrator, which is why the ahaadith he narrated are also weak.... I just wanted to know what has been said in defence of our Imam in this regard by our scholars.

Why do you think the Birmingham conference "The Legacy of Imam Abu Hanifah" took place!!!
