And it's 40 days from the end of season that the deadline hits.
But that could also play with Calgary that they know when the deadline is and is forcing them to keep him no matter what. We just don't have all the facts that they have.
It's a year from the day the team (in this case the Avs) decide to match. These are the last several trade deadlines:

2012: Feb 27
2011: Feb 28
2010: Mar 3
2009: Mar 4
2008: Feb 26

Since today is the 28th, match with the hopes of trading him next year is playing with fire.
