         Heyo, This here is my attempt at a rather decent NHL '96 FAQ.  Hockey has
    always been my favorite sport and hockey games especially bring back memories
    for me.
         NHL '96 may not be the best in the series but it introduces new concepts
    and abilites from previous versions.  This FAQ will basically describe the 
    many modes of play, team roster and player attributes, and a few other 
    Version 0.90:  Completed the guide to submittable status and thusly submitted
                   it in hopes of it being accepted.
                   (July 6th, 2005)
         NHL '96 adds a few new moves to the mix from '95, those being the quick 
    stop, spinorama, fake shots, one time passing, and shot blocking abilites.
         The controls are fairly basic but change drastically whether you are in
    control of the puck, on the defensive, or in control of the goalie.
    Y button - Dump the puck or fake shot when past the centre ice line
    B button - Pass puck, holding directionals aim the pass to specific players
    A button - Tapping A shoots a quick but weaker wrist shot and holding down A
               unleashes a slapshot, which is more powerful.
    X button - The X button plus a directional is a drop pass between the legs
    L button - Quick stop
    R button - Spinorama
    (Defensive/Without Puck)
    Y button - Hook the opposing player, impeding his progress
    B button - Change player to the player closest to the puck, and poke check
               when you are in control of the player closest to the puck
    A button - Speed Burst/Body Check
    X button - No apparent use
    L button - Shot block attempt in your own zone only
    R button - Shot block attempt in your own zone only
    (Goaltender Control)
    Y button - Attempt to smother the puck with a dive, and when in control of the
               puck this flips the puck out of the zone
    B button - Poke check, or pass when in control of the puck
    A button - Save
    X button - The X button changes your control to the goalie if you have it on 
               manual control
    L button - no apparent use
    R button - no apparent use
    (Instant Replay Control)
    Y button - Rewind
    B button - Play/Pause
    A button - Fast Forward
    X button - Slow Motion
    (Misc. Controls)
    B then A - One-timer shot
    B then Y - One-timer pass
    B on the Faceoff - Take the draw, directions aim the puck if you win.
    Using the One-timer pass in conjunction with the one timer shot can result in
    some pretty sweet looking give and go style plays, give it a try sometime.
         NHL '96 has the standard modes of play, the exhibition mode, season mode,
    and practice modes.
    The Exhibition mode is just that, an exhibition game to hone your skills
    either against a computer opponent or a friend.  There are three skill levels
    to choose from as well, Novice, Intermediate, and Expert.
    The Season mode lets you play through the entire NHL season.  You do not pick
    a specific team, rather you check off the games you would like to play.  You
    can customize the options to change the length of in game periods to 5, 10, or
    20 minutes.  You can toggle goalie control to automatic or manual 
    (You can always change it in game if you wish).  During playoff play you may
    set the options so that the playoff series are best of seven format or single 
    Practice mode is neat in that you can choose how many players each team will
    ice.  For a challenge you can take control of a goalie against 3 or 5 opposing
    players.  Or a one on one showdown is always nice.  For each team you can
    choose between zero and five players.
    Rules and Options - 
         There are varying options you can modify to your liking such as the 
    ability to turn penalties, offsides, and or line changes off.
         Fighting is also an option in this game, if you liek you can have it on
    or off.
    Create a Player, and Transactions - 
         You can create your own player in this game as in NHL '95.  You enter
    your players name, height, weight, prefered number and position.  After you
    input the basics you have to distribute 360 points between 11 statistical 
    categories for forwards and defensemen and 8 categories for goaltenders.
         You also have the ability to make team trades, even though if the cpu
    determines the trade is too lopsided it may deny the transaction.  
    And lastly you can release players to free agency and assign them to different
         The following section will list each respective team, along with the 
    rankings of past season performance and a roster list detailing the players
    position, name, and overall attribute rating.
         I may add a note to a team's profile if I want to point something 
    out as well.

    Team Note - No that is not a typo, this team acttually does have two 
    S. Quintals!  They are exactly the same attribute wise, it may be a 
    good idea just to release one too free agency as to not be confused.
    All-Rookie Team
    Corey Hirsch, Vancouver
    Ed Jovanovski, Florida
    Kyle McLaren, Boston
    Daniel Alfredsson, Ottawa
    Eric Daze, Chicago
    Petr Sykora, New Jersey
    This here is a list of actual players that made the All-Rookie team the year
    of the games publication.  If you like you may add these players to their
    specific teams by creating them.
    Stat wise 
    - Corey Hirsch should be in the low 60's overall rating
    - Ed Jovanovski should have high checking and aggression attributes 
    - Kyle Mclaren should have good checking and defense awareness
    - Daniel Alfredsson should have good speed and offense awareness
    - Eric Daze should have good checking skill
    - and Petr Sykora should have good skating skill.
    But again, this is just something I put in here for fun.
    A few various questions here
    Q: Which team is the best?
    A: well if you go by EA's Team Skill the Detroit Red Wings have the best 
       rankings on their specific team abilities, but they may not neccessarily
       be the best team.  Just choose a team that suits your style of play, even
       though there is not really much difference between the better skilled teams
       certain players may stand out to you as skating faster, shooting harder, 
       or just plain scoring a lot of goals.  Check each players individual stat
       categories to compare skill.
    Q: Any two line passes in this game?
    A: Although there are offsides, there are no two line offside passes.
    Q: Any way to get around the annoyance of the cpu denying your trades?
    A: Well, you can release the player and the sign him on the other team if
       your trade does not seem suitable.
    Anymore questions that anyone has can be mailed to me.
         If anyone out there has any questions or suggestions for me, please, feel
