The stat lines for each player (through 35 games) are as follows
Brent Burns: 6G, 6A, 12PTS, +10, 12PIM, 98 SOG
Ian White: 5G, 15A, 20PTS, +24, 10PIM, 95 SOG
I have to say, where Ian White stands statistically is where I expected Burns to be at this point in the season. I should also say that I was a huge fan of White and was sad when we let him go as I thought he showed tremendous upside in the postseason. It's not to say that Burns has been a disappointment or that I dislike him. I was and still am excited to have him in teal, and I think his lack of production has been a result of hockey's fickle nature more than anything else. But given Ian White's offensive production so far this year, I couldn't help myself from comparing Burns and White (a player the organization felt was no longer needed after the addition of #88).
