It would cost nothing but cash, so I think it would be a good move to make.
I know Devils fans have been disappointed in Zidlicky's play lately, so we might be able to get him for cheap, although I agree it is pretty unlikely we get both in under the cap.
As I said...Jagr would be HUGE! He's like a topline version of Torres and what I want him for, but I have a feeling Montreal, if it's a two horse race, will throw everything at him, and I just don't think we'd get further then 2nd again (as with Clowe and Doan over the summer). If we can...yes! We should make a pitch, but I just can't get my hopes up.
Zidlicky could be our reclamation project on a bridge contract. If we could get him at the cap hit you cited, or even a little more, he'd do good things for our blueline.
