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.

pretty darn solid recruiting class for Denver I must say....they are starting to put together some nice prospects....

not sure if Mayfield goes to DU....OHL might pry him away....that could be a big loss if he jumps.
