Player Attributes:

Other Tips:

-Edit your lines! Most teams default lines dont work well.

Usually want a Forward with high Shot Power and Accuracy for One Timers at Center

For better defense, use light players because they check better

-Learn Goalie Control! Otherwise those slappers will be going in frequently

Use it also on Breakaways, so the money goal doesnt go in

Also can to stop One Timers, but its a hard skill to learn

Some nice tips there gr81.

The idea of a community strategy guide was swirling around in my head a few months ago. Guys would all contribute to the various sections, and I'd design the cover and pages, create a pdf with some of the print media skills I've garnered. Then let the members decide what makes the cut.

I'm still open to the idea, though I have a lot of irons in the fire right now so to speak.

Sounds like you need a wiki.

Have to disagree to disagree. But I was thinking about something physical - I'm still disgruntled about Corey Sandlers "Inside" NHL '94 guide; someone might actually be crazy enough to actually print our guide out. Or make a interactive flash 3.0 movie.

It would go sort of like this:

  • Cover
  • Preface
  • Credits
  • Table of contents
  • Fundimentals
    • Basics of hockey
    • Controls
    • Rules
    • Penalties
    • Skating
    • Shooting
    • Passing
    • Playing with line changes
    • Playing with offsides

    [*]Strategies

    • Offensive
      • Setting up shop
      • Scoring
        • Break aways
        • One timers
        • dekes
        • slap shots

        [*]Passing

      [*]Defensive

      • Positioning
      • Checking
      • Goalie Control

    [*]Team Profiles

    • Player Profiles | Ratings

    [*]Team Matchups

    [*]Extras

    [*]Index

    [*]Colophon

Necrobump time!

I was talking to Jesus and I wanted to express my opinion that this site could use a good strategy guide, both for newbs and vets alike. Hopefully, there will be cooperation from the many active members of the community who would like to see this project through and possibly give their input on teams and play mechanics, anything you'd want.

For those who had the official strategy guid and were dissapointed by it (Like Jesus was), this is your golden chance to make this happen.

Ya that's the old GDL site Dmitri used to maintain. The new one can be found in the Genesis Draft League thread.
