A third line player that other teams fans have inquired about possibly acquiring at least 18 times in the past year.

Search function and a quick scan of the results shows Berglund showing up as a target in the OP of a trade thread from fans of: Toronto (4x), Edmonton (3x), Montreal (3x), Anaheim (2x), Calgary, Buffalo, Colorado, Ottawa, Carolina, and the Islanders.

...Berglund may not be "untouchable" in raw-talent terms, but he's at least a fair bit more valuable than Shawn Horcoff, and the Blues roster situation is such that they're not looking to trade him, and anyone inquiring about his availability should expect that they're probably not going to be willing to give up what it would take for the Blues to move him.

There's a fair argumentative difference between "untouchable" and "I wouldn't trade him for Mark Giordano"
