i never compared him to theodore first of all. second of all, theodore was a backup the last two seasons.

second of all - stats prove nothing. tortorella can say whatever he wants. if you believe martin biron is even in the same breath as henrik lundqvist you've lost all credibility (if you have any left, that is)

if you want to play the stats game: here are a few backup goalies with better save %'s than clemmensen:

ray emery (who is awful)
js gigure (awful)
curtis sanford (was in the AHL the last few years)
dan ellis (awful)
chris mason (awful)
sergei bobrovsky (good young goalie, but struggling a bit for PHI with high shots)
johan hedberg
evgeni nabokov/al montoya (whichever you consider a "backup for NYI)
richard bachman (no-name prospect for dallas)
jason labarbara (he has the nickname LOLbarbara for a reason)
thomas greiss (has cleared waivers, at least twice)
jhonas enroth
