Usage of could have happened


A : How are you?

B: I am great. Quitting the band was the best thing that could have happened.


This is a dialogue and I still do not know what "could have happened" means there.


Does it function the same as in


A : Someone was asking for it.

B: It could have been Tom.


Thank you so much as usual and take good care.
