I'm not sure I understand this. Is it possible that in the case where a player is wanted by every team in the league that the team picks the player?

I'm not sure what you mean. It's not even arguable that he fell into their laps - that's exactly what happened. It would have happened no matter who signed him.

Unless you're talking about the effort made to convince him this team is the right one, in which case the Oilers should get as much credit as any other team would have had he signed with them.
