Anyway i doubt the habs would trade for O'Reilly they wouldn't want to give him a huge contract.
Hejduk is the shell of his former self and Duchene is so horribly missused on the PP (Joe Sacco uses him on the point for some idiotic reason) that he's almost a non-factor out there and he's been so terrible last season that he really didn't have anything to do with Radar's point totals. Radar spent most of his two first seasons playing with the likes of Tucker, McLeod, Winnik etc and he didn't see any PP time. He posted 55 points last season despite being used in a shutdown role for the first couple of months and despite playing with a rookie (albelit a great one) in Landeskog and offensive black hole in Winnik, over the hill Hejduk (who went to score 1 goal in 23 games while playing on his line) and Downie (who was great when he arrived, but busted his shoulder in the 7th game in Denver which caused a severe drop off in his play).
