  Everett: This "Quiet" variation vs the Slav can turn into a very nice Stonewall Attack in the right hands. The LSB can either go to d2 or b2 depending on position, but the basic elements are there for the Ne5 jump followed by f4 and a comfortable position.

  fredthebear: In the final position, Black cannot protect the e6-pawn. From there, the White queen eyes the seventh rank while the Black king has little cover.
