Considering the volume they handled during the bubble it could have been much worse.

Having nearly 3 million seized definately put a crimp in their business.  This had to be one of the reasons they put a 2 week freeze on withdrawals.  Im sure it also stalled their other projects like upgading the web infrastucture and delays for implementing litecoin.
