admittedly not from Duth, I was just mentionning Duthie commenting on it via Twitter which he did with this tweet :

The Insiders have the latest on Luongo on SC. With Gillis' mystery team reference, this has officially become a Scooby-Doo episode. #raggy
Here's the quote from the article
In fact, Gillis said there might be a deal in place for Vancouver’s gold-medal-winning, conference-winning, Vezina contending backup goaltender.
From Cole, the cryptic conversation:
The Luongo trade, or non-trade, which has taken on a life of its own with the way Schneider started the season (five goals on 14 shots before being pulled Saturday), could happen soon, or in a month, or not at all.
We have a potential deal in place with one team that has to do something with another player that they have — and it’s not who anybody thinks it is — and so we have to wait.
(But) we’ve been offered packages that don’t fit what our plan is, what we need,” said Gillis.
That has to do something with another players that they have …
this would almost seem like a reference to the three unsigned high-profile restricted free agents in the NHL: Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars, P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens and Ryan O’Reilly of the Colorado Avalanche.
Although right after that the article says :
Carey Price says we can rule out that middle team
