Slow might have been the wrong word.
Let's say immobile.

While Coburn is a spectacular skater, Mez and Bourdon have good speed, but lack quickness.
Timonen really isn't what he used to be, he makes up for it with his positioning.
Grossmann und Schenn imo are really below average skaters.

We don't know how available Shea Weber is but I still think the ideal move would have been to package JVR for him and re-sign Carle. Move Mez, keep Schenn, Couturier and Giroux.

Carle-Weber
Coburn-Grossmann
Timonen-Bourdon
