* When playing in Dynasty mode, start with any team. After the first year, when
in free agents, choose a player named S. Whitaker. He is 16 years old and has
99 potential. He starts off with 82 overall, but by the time he is 18, he will
be a superstar with 99 overall.
* In Dynasty mode, go to the free agents. Sign all the top free agents, then
select any players you do not want on your team with a high salary and go
shopping for cheap players, such as Ovechkin, Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Cheechoo,
Pominville, Vanek, Afinogenov, Tucker, Gionta, and Cambell. Look for young
players with a salary under $800,000 that are signed for more than one year.
The best value in the game are Ovechkin and Crosby, but it might be impossible
to get these players unless you trade your franchise player or start with their
High draft pick:
This trick can get you one first round, thirty second round, thirty third round,
thirty forth round and thirty fifth round draft picks. Just trade a your first for
their first and 2, 3, 4, 5 round.
Dynasty mode: Easy Draft picks:
During the regular season there will be some good teams putting players on waivers
for other teams to claim. If you find a good player but have a lot of other good
players on your team, acquire him and trade him for a first, second, third, or fourth
round pick. If the player is very good you might get a first round draft pick. Only
trade players for draft picks if the other team leads the league in losses. There is
a good chance that team will get a first round draft pick at the end of the year.
If you trade a player for their pick, you will get their first round pick at the end
of the year. This means you will probably get a superstar player.
A few days before the trade deadline, identify the worst teams in the NHL. Select
one of them and trade your first and third round for their first and fifth round
picks. This will almost always work. If it does not, switch trade with another team.
Then, finish the season and you should have a top five pick (unless the team somehow
got good at the end). After you select "Move To Offseason" save the game. Then, go
to the draft and pick whomever desired. After the draft is complete, go back to every
round and check which players you want to draft. Restart the system and reload the
game. Then, draft again and get the desired players.
Start with the Toronto Maple Leafs in Dynasty mode, then hit the free agent market.
Pick up every over 80 overall player, then hit the trade market. First sign Tucker
to a long term deal, along with White, Colaiacovo, Steen, Wellwood, and Peca. Trade
away Sundin, Oneill, Kilger for Ovechkin, and a under 60 overall player. Trade Raycroft,
and two 80+ rated free agents for Martin Broduer and two 70 rated overall fourth line
players. Trade Newbury, Battaglia, Stajan for Pominville, Vanek, Trade Gill and Kubina
for either Neidermeyer, or Pronger (what ever you prefer) Trade a free agent rated 80+
overall for F Kaberle. You now have some very good top forwards who are young, fast
and cheap, along with four solid defenseman. Your team should look like this: G Broduer,
Aubin F Ovechkin, Steen, Wellwood, Pominville, Vanek, Tucker, Peca, plus free agents
and farm players (D. Mccabe, Neidermeyer or Pronger; or T. Kaberle and F. Kaberle; or
Colaiacovo and White). The game uses a three line strategy, so your fourth line can be
filled with below average players.
