I would say a lot. The lockout basically killed the trade market for fringe players on teams this year. With the short camp there was almost zero time to evaluate and possibly deal some of these guys and some hasty decisions had to be made.

For as humorous as it was to throw all the "All your waivers are belong to us!" jokes at Snow, he may have (yet again) been ahead of the curve on some of these waiver guys.
