Demoting Clemmensen only makes the situation worse. He needs to be traded for another soon-to-be UFA backup, so that we can have him off the books next year, re-sign Theo and finally call-up Markie for good.
Quickly looking at capgeek, most likely places Clemmer ($1,200,000) could end up:
Phoenix for Labarbera ($1,250,000), a sure way (with the never ending ownership saga that they have) to get a backup is to trade for one that has a year left, right?
Nashville for Mason ($1,500,000), Rinne is the bona-fide number 1 in Nashville, but they need a backup to play about 15 to 20 games. Clemmer fits the profile.
Winnipeg for Montoya ($601,000), again just like Nashville, Pavelec plays most of the games and Jets just need someone to play the rest.
Montreal for Budaj ($1,150,000), case Nashville&Winnipeg.
Edmonton for Khabibulin ($3,750,000), Khabi is yet to play a game this season. And with Oilers making Dubnyk their current and future number 1, Khabi could welcome a trade for more playing-time and a chance to resurrect his career.
Whether it's with another team, bought out or in the AHL, Clemmer won't be here to start the next season. I hated the 2 year deal from the beginning.
