EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NHL 12

In NHL 12 you're able to battle for position in front of the net creating screens, deflections, rebounds and of course protecting against the like. To do this stand next to an opponent and move the RS against him. You pretty much have to stand still to able to battle it out so don't move the LS.
If you're being tied up in front of the goal, move the LS in a circle.

I hope that EA adress the effectiveness of the hip-check (R3). Right now (first week since release) it's way too effective and this is being exploited in the EASHL. You pretty much only have to touch a player while crouching to send him down.

When you edit your lines, remember to change your powerplay and boxplay lines. Also don't use a high rated goalie as back up since the matches count even if he's not playing (iow you're shortening his career).
To get a good line chemistry try aquiring players from the same team or att least the same league. Place them on their correct spot (LW as LW etc). Avoid players with the same role on the same line (3 PLU's for example). With a good chemistry you won't bobble as many passes.
Trade players instead of just buying packs. If you get a star player from a pack, search Trade for team mates that's being sold for a good price. Avoid players with few matches left in their career. Prices tend to be higher in the weekend when more players are playing.
If you buy Peeweepack for 600 pucks - contract cards can be sold so that you make a profit. I myself tend to buy contract cards for maxprice 200-300 when I need them to complete a tournament.
Don't forget to collect and use training cards. You can use these on cheap, young players with good potential (they will make excellent low sallary 3rd and 4th liners). You may use someting like 14 training cards on them. Before you start adding training cards to players you should add contracts that are as long as you got to them. This because their salary will be higher if you add the contract to them after adding training cards.
Try finding players that suit your playing style. If you mostly score on the rush - look for fast players and SKT training cards. If you don't tackle much, you're better off with palyers with good DEF and DEF training cards.

NHL 12 is coming up and I'm gonna try to be more productive this year. I'm thinking about making some new videos explaining the basics and some tricks. I thinks it's a good idea since I've gotten better at the game over the years and know more. With that said, I still consider myself an average player. Online I tend to win two for every loss. So I'm not a top player but I'm OK.  But I guess if you're really good at this game, you got no need for this blog right?

So what questions do you want answered this season and what videos would you like me to produce?

If your opponent is putting on a lot of pressure on you in your defensive zone - then he's probably overloading the part of the ice where your puck holder is. This means that the other side of the ice shouldn't be as crowded. It's tough to get your passes through but on the other hand you will get alot of 2 on 1's and breakaways if you can get a puck through with your opponent deep in your defensive zone. There's big risk of failure though since you opponent probably got at least 2 players challenging your puck holder.

Try getting the puck over to the other side of the ice, but avoid cross ice passes. You could try a drop pass into offensive zone on your weakside wingers side if there's enough space between your puck holder and the opposing players. If there isn't, try passing round your opponent. What I mean is that you should pass the puck backwards, then over to the other side, and then up the ice (like the letter U). If there's an opponent between your puckholder and the receiver when you're going to send the puck upwards towards offensive zone - use the boards and a slap pass to get by him

If you don't have any options at all, use a slap pass and the boards to a) get the puck into offensive zone or b) get the puck over to the other side.

Hold R1/RB (and aim with LS) and shoot a wind up shot to send a slap pass by the boards over to the other side as you enter offensive zone.

Here's a video about the overload strategy but the guy who's playing use the slap pass frequently to move the puck over to the other side of the ice. It's a less risky way than trying a cross ice pass.

You can also use the slap pass in your defensive zone. Like I stated before - it's a less risky way of getting the puck over to the other side. But don't do it with an opponent right by you as he will be able to easily steal the puck from you when you wind up the slap pass.

An important part of the game is to be in sync with your team mates. It's like a band. If the members don't play to the same beat it sounds terrible. In NHL 11 - you won't get your passes through.

So what you need to do is watch your team mates and figure out where they're going, when they'll get there and then time your own skating so you get into a position where you can send the puck away to the place your team mate is ending up at.

Let's look at a powerplay. I've set up behind goal and I'm using the Overload strategy. When I start moving over a little to the left winger side you'll se the right winger skating towards the middle of the ice (setting up for an overload of the left side of the ice). When he does this the first time, I fail timing my own move to his. But since my opponent doesn't attack me behind goal, I return to my starting position and so does my RW. When he's in place I trigger his skating pattern again by starting to move over to the left side of the ice. I skate slowly, pausing for a brief second just before I skate in full speed to get to a good position for a pass.



By the way - this is not a created play but a default pattern for the Overload strategy. Here's a nother version of the same pattern:



This type of timing you need to do all over the ice - like when dropping the puck into offensive zone - watch your team mates and send the puck away a split second before he crosses the blue line in full speed. This way you'll have a good chance beating your opponent to the puck - remember to hustle (click LS).



Sometimes you need slow down your skating or even make a little detour to give your team mates time to reach the slot. Try to have the patience to wait out your opponent. Don't go for chance passes through blocked lanes unless you're behind and desperate. Instead, pull back and see if you get another opportunity.
