Various Cheats and Hints
Most aggressive face-off formations have a far winger. Shooting or passing the puck in his direction might lead to some breakaways.
Getting good players cheaply:
Get your legal upgrades all the way up so that you can sign players for less. Save the game then release a high paying player into free agency. Immediately negotiate a new contract. With all the upgrades you can get players to take multimillion dollar pay cuts. Make sure you save first -- if you go too low on the offer the player may be insulted and not talk to your team anymore.
Easy goals Hint 1:
For all European teams is the World Cup of Hockey, all goalies will let in hard wrist shots from either the right or left.
Easy goals Hint 2:
All Canadian goalies let in a hard slap shot from the point. Make sure to set the strategy to "Aggressive" and the defensive strategy to "High Pressure".
Easy goals Hint 3:
If you turbo across the front of the net and shoot on the other side you are more likely to score.
Easy goals Hint 4:
Go up the right wing to the hash marks. Turn half way around and one time it. You will score about 90% of the time under the beginner, easy, or medium difficulty settings, and 70% under difficult setting.
Easy goals Hint 5:
Go behind the net and do a one timer. It will score all of the time because the goalie goes down and you will always shoot high.
Easy goals Hint 6:
Go behind the net and wait for someone to go in front of the net. As soon as you pass it in front of the net, the goalie will go down. You can shoot it high and score.
