If they traded JVR for Schenn straight up (which I doubt happens, I think it would be Schenn +) if my calculations are correct they could still go after a mid range forward like Tuomo Ruutu.

Hartnell-G-Jagr
Ruutu-Briere-Voracek
Simmonds-Schenn-Read
HarryZ-Couturier-Talbot

Timonen-Coburn
Carle-Schenn/Mez
Schenn/Mez-Gus/MAB

I honestly think that team is stronger with Ruutu (or similar player) and Schenn on D than with JVR and a different defender (unless the different defender is someone like Weber or Suter). Moving forward JVR would likely be better than Ruutu but Schenn will likely be better than our other defensive options. Since defense is a bigger need right now, I think it would really benefit this team. On paper JVR for Schenn is not a great deal for the Flyers, but because of the need of defensemen I think it makes sense.

I think its all BS though. JVR is not going anywhere unless we get Weber or Suter.
