If I remember right Paiement was 19 or something when he was drafted. He'd already been passed over once or twice. He had skating problems as well. Gaulton was not passed over in his first eligible draft--the concern is he did not play much because of an elbow injury. The Rangers in the past few years have reached for injured players who have fallen off the radar. Not saying that Gaulton is a sure fire NHL'er but I don't really see much comparison between his situation and Paiement's.
