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.
Who knows?.....maybe Chicago will want him........they need all the help they can get on their blueline as well........and Mike Smith doesn't mind picking up players off of the Leafs roster either.
