Quite a few teams are in need of defensive help. Berg's underrated by a lot of fans. That's not to say that he's a great defenseman because he certainly isn't. We all saw what Boughner went for. I'd say that Berg's value is higher than that. Both are #5 defenseman, but one is 32-33 while the other is 26 and still developing. History has shown us that GM's pay extra when taking into account a player's upside.

With all that said, Berg still won't fetch a whole lot by himself. Put together with a prospect and/or pick you could get something definitely worthwhile.
