While this statement is commonly believed among the masses, there actually ARE collections of Hadith where every Hadith is Sahih and the scholars do not dispute it. However, these books are lesser known works, and may have come MUCH later than Sahih al-Bukhari or Sahih Muslim.

for that case, it is a rule that if a 'sahabi' says something and it is not a matter where qiyas or ijtihaad is valid then it comes in the category of marfu' and auhentic. like the hadeeth of 'Ali ibn abi talib in musannaf ibn abi shayba according to which 'ali said that the qirat of fateha in the first 2 rak'at is enough for the remaing ones. hanafiyyah has done the istidlal from this hadeeth that a mufred or imam if recites fateha in only in the first 2 rak'at then its sufficient for him. however the hadeeth is weak.

what did u find about ANY marfu' hadeeth to be muttasil?
I've read that some of the Hadith in the Sahihayn may have Shadh (anomalies) in them.
shududh (anomalies) would make a hadeeth weak.
