There is no way Zidlicky would start on the top defensive pairing at even-strength. On the PP, I would expect to see Zidlicky and Weber on the points with PP2 quarterbacked by a combination of Suter and maybe either Arnott, Hamhuis, deViries, or maybe a guy like Klein or Koistinen depending on who makes the team and how much ice time they get.

Then again, I could see a scenario where Zidlicky gets about 1:20-1:30 of ice time on each power play as he is a third-pairing defenseman and an offensive specialist. He doesn't touch the ice on the PK and gets maybe 10-11 minutes of even-strength time per night...so extra PP time wouldn't hurt.
