The question isn't exactly if one is equipped to tackle the other, but simply if one relates to the other. That is, Western philosophy (in it's scholastic form from Aristotle onward) is foreign to Orthodox theology. Two Patristic/ early-Church Father mantras sum this up (afterall, if you want to understand Orthodox in more depth, you must go to the Patristic teachings): "What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?" (and) "The Theologian is the one who truly prays." The first implies that Western scholasticism is not needed to know God. The second implies that knowing God is an ascetic practice (ie. praying, repenting, confessing, etc). The fact of the matter is that Western Scholasticism (to continue to get clear on these terms) is often (with the exception of a few scholars like Aquinas, Anselm, Augustine, and other RC and Prot. scholars) not geared at knowing God (it could be said also that those who pursue the faith from a purely rational angle are no better off). Instead, they attempt to understand the world with their own cognitive/rational faculties, and either come up with blasphemous theories or worship Satanic 'gods'. Hegel, as you briefly mentioned, seems to do both of these. Although he claims he is a Christian, be not fooled. His "world Spirit" is none other than a synonym for Lucifer or something of such a realm, to help push not only euro-centricism/ increased political control. Which brings us to another point- that Western Philosophy is also often supported politically, and helps to move it's Satanic NWO agenda. For instance, Aristole also 'discipled' Alexander the 'Great'.
However, another angle on this topic was rightly noted in one comment in this discussion. That is, the Apologies of Saint Justin Martyr. In defense of the faith, he showed that Christianity is the oldest and truest philosophy. He even rebukes certain elements in Plato to show this point. It should be mentioned here, that Orthodoxy can use the terminology of the west, and not err. As you probably know, many Greek 'philosophical' terms were helpful for Orthodoxy to defend the faith against heresy.
This is all I will say about this for now. Though that may be a bit oversimplified, you must first ask if Western philosophy/ scholasticism is aimed at knowing God, and if it claims to be, you may investigate as to if it is the Holy Trinity or not. And again, one of the biggest differences is that Eastern Orthodoxy is holistic and ascetic, not purely rational as like Scholasticism or, it could even be said, like Judas.
