Radagast's staff in TABA

Radagast's staff in TABA Can't Post

So I remember reading a while ago an interview of Sylvester McCoy confirming that Radagast's staff from the hobbit is Gandalf's staff from Fellowship of the ring. Apparently it was removed by WB immediately due to huge spoiler alerts for the next films.

Follow the first link to find a picture of Gandalf's first staff from LOTR


On this link you will see Radagast's staff. Look at the third picture along.


Having seen both you will notice the same symbol appears on them. The only difference is that on Radagast's staff the bits of wood at the top are longer (maybe Gandalf trimmed them off) and that he has a removable blue crystal.

My question is: why does Gandalf end up with Radagast's staff. We now know that Gandalf's staff is destroyed by Sauron in DOS. Can anyone think of an appropriate plot line that might meant this occurs? I have thought that they might kill off Radagast but on the other hand this would be too much, they can't kill of a Maiar spirit for no good reason, it would have to be an epic showdown for it to be believable.

Anyone have any ideas on what this might mean? Perhaps the death of Radagast but if not, what else?
