Hints

Spin Deke

To perform the Spin Deke, hold L2  PlayStation3  or LT  Xbox 360  and rotate the Right Analog-stick a half circle either from left to right or vice versa.

Stick Flex

 PC    PlayStation3    Xbox 360  When creating or editing a player, make sure to consider his strength (size and weight) when choosing the Stick Flex setting. Bigger, stronger players can deliver a more powerful shot with a stiffer flex. Smaller players however do not have the strength to utilize the stiffer flex settings. Make sure to make the necessary adjustments by providing them with a more flexible stick.

Overcoming the salary cap

  • If you have created a six player squad of 99 ratings, but cannot fit them to a team due to salary cap concerns, even in a custom team, put them in an international or all-star team. These teams are not restricted to salary caps.
  • Another way to cheat on the salary cap is to use an AHL team. They also have the new RBK Edge jerseys.

Getting good players

  • If you want a line with all one All-star (for example, Crosby), release him from his NHL team, his All-star team (West, East), and his World All-star team (North American or World). Then, sign him to your team.
  • Avoid "one season wonders". For Season mode, a seemingly cheap price tag on a great, young player (for example, Ovechkin of Washington Capitals, Andrej Meszaros of Ottawa Senators, or Cam Ward of Carolina Hurricanes) may at first seem to be a good idea. However if this lineup is on a Dynasty mode, when you want to keep them after year one, you will be in deep trouble. An expensive tag on an old or poor player may mean that they are retiring soon or have long contracts.
