Not so fast my friend.
Seth's older brother Justin just committed to the University of Denver last week. This is usually a pretty good indicator that the younger brother will attend the same school (Jarrod & Dakota Mermis are the most recent example).
Easier for the parents to travel to see both brothers play at the same time. Denver is far closer to the family home in Dallas than Everett. Plus 60% of DU's games are on national TV.
Finally DU is less than 7 miles from the Pepsi Center so scouts & GMs can easily catch an Avs game and DU game on the same trip. 22 GM's saw Tyler Bozak play when he was a free agent.
I think you'll see Seth in Denver in 2012.
