When you have the puck, swing around the opponent's net. If the goalie is on the other side, then shoot with back hand shot. This best works with two players, so that other person can distract the goalie.
Go to game settings menu and adjust the 'Puck Friction', 'Puck Gravity' and every option you can adjust on that screen that has to do with the puck. Go to a game and shoot the puck down the ice. If it does not hit the goalie, the puck should be bouncing all over the place until it runs out of speed.
Getting Good Players
In dynasty mode, rack up on draft picks by signing unwanted free agents and trading them to random teams for draft picks. Doing this also earns you GM experience points.
When in Create A Player, typing in a certain name will cause the game to freeze. While typing in one of the members of Gob (Gabe Metal), the screen will freeze. For example, typing Metal, then Gabe will freeze the screen, as well as typing Gabe, then Metal.
Play in any mode on easy or beginner and just as you cross the blue line press the shoot button and the puck will go in almost always.
Duplicate a Player!
If you would like to create a duplicate of the same player on the NHL 2004 roster go to 'My NHL' then go to 'Create Player'. The next thing you have to do is type in the Players last name and first name, and then it'll say "There is a player in the database with that name. Would you like to create a player with the same information?" This works with only the NHL 2004 roster!
Ultimate Dynasty team
To get an awesome team go to rosters in exhibition mode then go to trade and pick all the players you want. start a new dynasty mode and set rosters to current and you will have the team you picked!!!
All Out Attack
If you're down by a goal late in the game and the other team has the puck, move your Offensive Quick Play to _All out Attack_ and your Defensive Quick Play to _High Pressure_ to put maximum pressure on the opposing team so you can get the puck back in your possession.

Have Ultimate Team Without Stealing Players
All you have to do is go to "my NHL" and create your own team. Pick whichever players you want to. Now when you go to "Dynasty Mode", substitute your created team for any other NHL team. Now you have the best team, and all of the members of your team are still on their original teams at the same time. But beware, if you created your own player he will still be a free agent at the start of the dynasty even though he is already on your team.
