I think Jay Harrison’s run in Raleigh is drawing to a close. He quickly went from an AHL caliber defenseman, to a border-line top-four NHL defenseman, now back to a fringe top-six defenseman in four seasons.
The Carolina Hurricanes have to pay Jay Harrison $1.5 million per season through the 2015-2016 season, but I think it would be best to get rid of him now and not pay him that money.
Brett Bellemore supplies the same physical game on the back end for potentially a lot less money than $1.5 million, pending on how much they pay pending the RFA. Jay Harrison has been a great Carolina Hurricane, but his production continues to get worse, so he may not be worth a roster spot anymore.
