I wouldn't want the Jets to give up a lot due to Orpik's UFA status in one season, but if the price was reasonable it might be a good fit.
i was actually thinking that an Orpik + TK package to Winnipeg would be interesting. as you said, Orpik can play the second-pairing and take heavy PK minutes. TK provides a shoot-first tweener RW - he could give Santorelli and Wellwood a run for their money.

i won't venture to guess the value of a Orpik + TK package.
