Hedberg will be the longest tenured backup with the Devils when this contract is over.

Terreri backed up, and probably even split time close to evenly with Sean Burke, Craig Billington, and Marty from 88-96. Really didn't consider him a backup from 90-94. Burke may have gotten a few more starts, and Billington too, but it wasn't huge in favor of Burke/Billington in that time. Remember Terreri pretty much split time with Marty in 93/94. Jacques usually started one every other game. There were a few times Marty played good games, and Jacques would award him with a second consecutive start. In the playoffs he went with Marty aside from those games against Boston Terreri got the nod. Terreri backed up Marty full time from 98-01 just under 3 seasons before being to dealt at the deadline for Vanbiesbrouck to the Isles.

Clemmensen was a backup in 01/02. Didn't play much except in games Marty was pulled. Don't think he ever started one that season just pretty much dressed. He went to Albany, and Damphousse(I always forget all about this guy) then Beezer came out of retirement briefly, then Schwab backed up in 02/03. Clemmer was full time backup for the 03/04, 05/06, and 06/07 seasons.

EDIT - I should say Longest tenured FULL TIME backup with the big club. Clemmer played or dressed as backup for about 6 seasons straight. Won't count him as he bounced back and forth between Albany, and the big club the first few years.
