He said "if I had the Rangers budget, I'd never lose a game" when he was still with Edmonton. His first four seasons with the Rangers were marred by poor drafting and bad free agent signings.
I quoted that part in the OP. The part that indicates otherwise is the specific Schonfeld quote, “Glen finally convinced everyone that that’s the way to go. He kind of wanted to start from scratch when he first came to New York.
