Can you tell about shrimp quality from the shell?

It seems as though a nice firm shell is an indicator of a good, fresh shrimp. Is this always true? Also, does a thin flimsy hard to peel shell mean that the shrimp must be old, or previously frozen. Does it depend on when during their lifecycle they were caught (do they moult) as to the texture of their shell?
