Plasma tvs are less susceptible to burn-in than they used to be, but they can still have it happen. They also tend to come equipped with a white-wash feature to remove burn-in, but that drastically shortens the life of the plasma.
As for the LG LED, I've heard nothing on it so far, but I would be pleasantly shocked if it was on par with a Samsung 9, given their history. My advice for buying a tv has always been, go see it in person before you buy it. Something that I consider "garbage" may be something better to you. Heck, you might even decide on a DLP.
However, I still stand by my original statement, if you're buying the set for games, avoid Plasma.
