It's too early to tell on the Schenn-JVR deal, clearly. I suspect that will end up looking better for Toronto, but who knows. It's possible that Luke's play coupled with whatever benefit the move provides Brayden in terms of comfort, etc., will be worth it for the Flyers, but JVr seemed like a pretty big piece to give up for another second pairing defenseman.

That said, I'm not entirely clear what you're referring to, implying the Flyers have a record of badly losing deals. Certainly not the Richards and Carter trades, right? Sure, they won a cup, in LA, and most Flyers fans are happy for them, but I doubt you'd find many who would swap the pieces we got in return to have them back...
The carter trade was an absolute fleecing by you guys, I personally wouldn't deal Richards though and I think the return was good, but not the best.
