this year there is 3 point per game left wingers. (ovechkin, kunitz, hall)
last year there was 1. (neal)
year before that there was 3 (sedin, ovechkin, zetterberg)
year before that was 5 (sedin, ovechkin, marleau, heatley, parise)
year before that there was 5 (sedin, ovechkin, parise, nash, elias)
year before that there was 3 (ovechkin, heatley, zetterberg)
year before that there was 7 (ovechkin, heatley, vanek, sedin, whitney, brunette, tanguay)
year before that there was 9 (ovechkin, heatley, marleau, zetterberg, mcdonald, kariya, gagne, tanguay, stillman)

this year there is 3 point per game right wingers (st louis, kane, kessel)
year before that there was 3 (giroux, kovalchuk, kessel)
year before that there was 5 (st louis, kane, perry, iginla, selanne)
year before that there was 6 (st louis, kane, gaborik, kovalchuk, semin, alfredsson)
year before that there was 3 (kovalchuk, iginla, semin)
year before that there was 6 (iginla, alfredsson, kovalchuk, kovalev, gaborik, st louis)
year before that there was 7 (iginla, st louis, hossa, jagr, briere, selanne, alfredsson)
year before that there was 7 (jagr, alfredsson, kovalchuk, cheechoo, hossa, selanne, gionta)

there is a lot of players in those years that have multiple point per game seasons as a winger. unless you are saying that burns is going to be more like a cheechoo, brunette, briere, perry then you don't have a point. there has been lots of point per game wingers just in the past 8 years.
