Ibn-ul-Abideen Hanfi writes in His book, Rad-ul-Mokhtar ala Dur-ul-Mukhtar (رد المحتار على الدر المختار )

وأما سلمان الفارسي رضي الله تعالى عنه فهو وإن كان أفضل من أبي حنيفة من حيث الصحبة ، فلم يكن في العلم والاجتهاد ونشر الدين وتدوين أحكامه كأبي حنيفة

As regards to Salman Farsi, He was superior to Abu Hanifa in regards to Companionship, but not in regards to Knowledge, Ijtihad, propagation of religion and compilation of Orders.
