I've seen 'Farrah' play a few games in Hartford, color me very skeptical that he'll ever skate at the NHL level.
Now Paiement is a curious story. . . solid size. Heavy PIMs. And absolutely sick scoring this season. I mean, the guys averaging like 1.5 points a game from the blue line! I keep waiting for him to slow down, but it hasn't happened yet.
I dunno, how bad could his skating be?
Ive been trying hard to find the story on this kid. Apparantley, the scouts were skepitcal about his breakout year last season. In none of his teenage years did he play this good on the offensive side. I heard his skating is fine. THe only thing that held him back was the doubt that he could do it again. Also, Ive heard that since his offense has come through so late in his teenage years scouts dont believe it will translate into a pro game.
