Think overall the deal will be fine for Philadelphia. While the total value of the trade might look lopsided, Philadelphia still benefits from this trade. 2nd round selections have a 1/4 shot at playing in the NHL and Robert Hagg isn't a great player for the Flyers system. It boils down to they traded a 1st rounder for Risto.
Risto becomes the second best zone exit man for Philadelphia which is something they lost with Matt Niskanen. His defense is choppy but hopefully they can work him with a pair and he flourishes in a new system. Overall the Flyers got the two best players in the deals for Ellis and Risto and it cost them the 13th/14th overall selection, two 1/4 shots at a dart board, a 7th, and Phil Myers + two cap dumps / bad players.
