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).
It sounds like the Av's are on tough times without O'Reilly in the lineup,while Duschene has 2-7=9pts for a share of the team lead and then Mitchell C and Stastny C following him with 7 & 6pts each and Hedjuk/RW with 4pts behind 1st line PA Parenteau tied for tops with Duschene with 9 sounds like center isn't a hardship for the Avs to me.
