When the Calgary Flames took to the ice last weekend, no one knew it would be a night to remember. Bob Hartley, the coach of the Calgary Flames, decided to throw out the fourth line as the starting line; stating that they had a “scoring touch” recently. Since the Flames were the visiting team, they were to submit the starting lineup prior to the home team, who were the Vancouver Canucks. John Tortorella, the coach of the Canucks, was well aware of the situation he was in. If he were to play his first line, which was made up of smaller but more skilled players, he would be putting his best players at risk of injury, which would affect the team’s performance on a long run basis. So he did what he had to do, and threw out the Canucks’ enforcer line to clash with the Flames. Two seconds into the game, right after the puck had dropped, a full line brawl ensued, and over one hundred and fifty penalty minutes were handed out in total to both teams. While I will not comment on who is right or wrong, it leads me to one point: When a competitor pulls out a threat, the only response is to produce something just as threatening to combat the competition. It only makes sense to battle opposition with things that can directly match, and hopefully defeat, the rival. When ASUSTOR sent us the AS-202TE, we here at APH Networks found a two-bay NAS device that was quite commendable in terms of its software and performance. With Thecus offering a similar product in the N2560 with the same two-bay setup, can the Thecus N2560 hold its own against the competition? Read on to find out!
