Unfortunately he hasn't really meshed with the new coaching staff.

Of course I am not proposing Moen for the 7th overall. Even if the premise of the deal would be the 7th overall for a lower 1st round pick and a package that adds immediate NHL depth, I'm not sure there's a deal to be made. Emelin or Diaz would have to be bundled up as well, but they're both UFA after next season. Not sure the Habs really have the luxury of being able to trade away NHL defencemen anyway.

Leaving aside the 7th overall, I think Moen might be available, and he might be a good fit for what you suggest the Oilers are looking for.
Moen is worth like a 3rd round pick and adding in Emelin or Diaz is not goint t get you the 7th over all pick.
