Don't be silly. At that point in time there were no planets at all -- hydrogen was about the only thing in the universe, until stars started burning hot and fast to put heavier elements into the universe.
This article is pointless conjecture. Conditions for life as we know it could not have possibly existed, due to a lack of pressure, gravity and a planet to live on, materials required to put anything together, etc. The only thing that this shows is that it was warm enough for life, while utterly disregarding the rest; it's like saying that you have an oven that's heated up to 350 degrees, so there should be a cake in there, without putting any of the ingredients into the oven. Including a pan for the cake.
