'"I think it's quite safe at this point to say I'll definitely be in the UFA (unrestricted free agent) pool," McKee wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "I just don't think they are prepared to make an offer that would be considerable to keep me out of the UFA market." McKee said the Sabres have made him an offer, but declined to provide the details, saying he doesn't want to negotiate through the media.'
