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.
I'm trying to make the point that out of all the signings they've made, finally one appears to finally be a homerun ... but until a pattern develop's where the Oilers are the destination of choice for UFA's; I will not credit management with a thumbs up, especially when you consider all their other failures.
