FW easy, uphill finish>>>>>>flat finish. Plus Fleche gets bonus points for finishing on the Huy.

Mur de Huy is one of the best if not the best finish all year IMHO, I always look forward to it

Scheldeprijs is much better because you are always guaranteed a close finish. That silly hill at the end of Fleche Wallone ruins it for me.

Fleche, to be honest. I see your point, but the last km is the ultimate steep wall in cycling, despite the best efforts of Unipublic.
If Unipublic started organizing 1-day races you'd have to swallow your words :D
 
Scheldeprijs is only exciting in the last km.
Fleche Wallone is only exciting in the last km.
The last km in the Scheldeprijs takes about a minute.
The last km in the Fleche Wallone takes about 4 minutes.
So FW>Scheldeprijs because there's about 4 times as much excitment.
 
There aren't worse races than Scheldeprijs. That race literally only exists to injure people. You could have a better event by holding a prize draw where the first ten riders whose race numbers are pulled out of a hat get their collarbones snapped, and the remainder then hold a 100 meter drag race.
