If you read the quote, he says it's pending due to the other team having to make a move first.
Bryzgalov is the only obvious candidate. Philadelphia hasn't been mentioned other than a brief one or two day period, so I could see them fitting the description. The Flyers aren't going to move Couturier for Luongo. Schneider? Maybe, but not a goaltender that's getting on in age and has a somewhat dubious contract. Voracek would fit this team like a glove. Big, playmaking winger that could really complement Kesler and Booth on the second line.
From the other quotes about Gillis wanting to give youngsters a chance next year, I think he has faith that Schroeder can fill the third line void long-term. Gaunce isn't likely to be ready and we're not exactly rich with young centres. I hope the kid impresses in the next month or so.
