Newsday: Greg Logan reported in his blog the Islanders have placed Freddy Meyer on waivers Saturday. He has until noon Monday to clear before he can join the Isles’ the Sound Tigers.

Because Meyer is in the final season of a deal that pays him $540,000. Logan speculates this could open the door for a Berard signing but he may have a problem finding a spot.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
So much for being stubborn on Snow's part and holding onto everyone. Looks like someone's patience has run out either it be Garth Snow, Bryan Berard or Freddy Meyer. Good question on Logan's part who would sit for Berard or does Nolan go to seven defenders? If Berard is signed now you have to ask was making him sit around opening night worth it.

Apparently the Islander quotes in camp from Nolan that he was leaning toward a seventh defender to dress did not happen in the opener.

Hopefully the Islanders hang onto Meyer and he is not claimed but I do not think he's going to be happy for long in Bridgeport.

For a few more days the saga continues.
