this, go to the commisioner menu off of the main season
menu. Choose the teams with players you want as teams you
control. Go to the trade menu and trade from one team you

NHL 2000 rewards skilled passing with opportunities and
goals. Work on the one-time pass.
One of the best defensive techniques involves mowing down
anything you see. In the Game Rules menu, set the penalty
slider low, then go after any player. If you miss the puck
carrier, take out one of his cohorts before you switch
control to another player.
On defense, remember that you are extremely vulnerable to
rebounds. Sure, the other guys will get their fair share of
breakaways (though you should try to eliminate them, too),
but an open man with a rebound is very dangerous indeed.
In short, ensure that any player standing in front of your
net, even if he has already shot, gets bounced.
One of the most wicked weapons you have in your arsenal is the
deflection. Send your winger at fast speed into an offensive
corner, then twirl him back toward the blue line; this gives
your two linemates time to get themselves in front of the
opponent's net. You'll next want to hit the Pass button while
pointing your player toward the net with the D-pad, then depress
the Shoot button just before the puck has reached your teammate.
The resulting change of direction can fool even the best goaltender.
Dekes are back! The NHL series has once again put a premium on slick stickhandling as you're coming in on the goal.
A skilled player such as Pavel Bure or Joe Sakic will capitalize on breakaways with a move to the right, then a move to the left (or vice versa), and a quick shot to the open side.
