Basically if use a 300 2.8 on a 7D and on a 5D2 and then shoot a distant bird with both from the same spot then you can either get the bird with the 7D with more reach (more pixels per duck) but worse noise than with the 5D2 (when viewing at non-noarmalized size).

Actually not even that. Any noise advantage of large sensor went away when you are reach limited and need to crop anyway. 5DII sensor cropped 1.6x should not be any different than 7D sensor in light collecting capability except it will have less pixels and less details.
