Create a player and enter "Wayne Gretzky" as a case-sensitive name. His stats will all be at 99.
Send a player in one-on-one with the goalie. Pass the puck back to either your Right Wing or Left Wing. As soon as your stick leaves the ice, the goalie should dive and the net will be wide open for a shot.
Intervene in every game in the third period. If you want to play more, intervene in the second period, but you must be winning to get more money.
To get a high rated prospect you do not need to upgrade your scouting report. First, save the game after the season ends. Then, advance to the draft. Draft a player or just go into the second round. Look at the highest overall draft pick, load back your season, and draft that person.
