Sure, if you think Hudson is done, then keep Reyes. But if you think Hudson's just in a slump, and he'll get back to his reliable, slightly above average self, then you want him. Reyes may end up better than Hudson, but he's not going to be Liriano, and he's going to get rocked a number of times.
The risk is higher with Reyes, and the ceiling is essentially the same, IMO, which is why I would pick Hudson. Next year, I'd take Reyes.
