This guide is based on the Playstation 2 format. Firstly, I would like to say that I do not include Version Histories due to the fact I like to type a guide out all in one day. With that out of the way, this guide will let you in on all the secrets of NHL 2002, including the different tasks you can complete. Enjoy the guide. and remember, 'Be the Hero'. =============================================== Controls [CNTRL] =============================================== Main Menu: D-Pad [Up/Down] - Pick Item D-Pad [Left/Right] - Toggle Teams X Button/Start - Select Item/Next Screen Triangle Button - Go Back Player With Puck: Triangle Button - Deke Square Button - Shoot Circle Button - Speed Burst X Button - Pass X Button - Saucer Pass [Hold X Briefly] L1 Button - Spin Left R1 Button - Spin Right R2 Button - Change Line Player Without Puck: Triangle Button - Big Hit Square Button - Poke Check Circle Button - Speed Burst/Body Check X Button - Change Player/Faceoff Fighting: Square Button - High Punch X Button - Uppercut Goalie with Puck: Square Button - Clear Puck X Button - Pass Goalie without Puck: Circle Button - Save Puck Select Button - Control Goalie =============================================== Strategy [STRGY] =============================================== Player Symbols: Target - The target means that player is a sniper. This player has very fast shots and they are very accurate. These players are very dangerous, so watch out. Hockey Stick - The hockey stick means that player is a Big Shooter. They are the best players to shoot a one timer with, and if you do a slapshot with this player, it will be guaranteed to be over 90 Miles per Hour. Hammer - This player is a very hard hitter. Use the big hit [triangle] button when you dont have the puck and this player will drop someone in a snap. 'H' on a Shield- This player is your key player to use. These players are heroes, and will only be at hero status in the 3rd period if you are tied or losing, or in the overtime period. Types of Shots: Wrist Shot - Wrist shots are the basic shot in the game that requires no more than a tap of the shoot [square] button. Slapshot - Slapshots are best preformed with a Big Shooter. This shot is very fast and is done when you hold the shoot [square] button down for a couple second and release. Backhand - This shot is the same as a wrist shot except your player shoots backwards. One Timers - This is the shot you want to preform. A 'One Timer' is a shot that consists of two players and a puck. The first player passes the puck to the second, and a second players shoots the pass. This shot will go in about 50% of the time, at least for me it does. =============================================== NHL Teams [TEAMS] =============================================== ____________________________________________ |_____________Eastern Conference:____________| Atlanta Thrashers Boston Bruins Buffalo Sabres Overall - 75 Overall - 80 Overall - 82 Scoring - 72 Scoring - 76 Scoring - 80 Defence - 74 Defence - 77 Defence - 81 Goaltending - 78 Goaltending - 83 Goaltending - 84 Carolina Hurricanes Florida Panthers Montreal Canadiens Overall - 80 Overall - 77 Overall - 80 Scoring - 76 Scoring - 74 Scoring - 76 Defence - 77 Defence - 73 Defence - 80 Goaltending - 84 Goaltending - 83 Goaltending - 87 New Jersey Devils New York Islanders New York Rangers Overall - 84 Overall - 78 Overall - 79 Scoring - 79 Scoring - 76 Scoring - 76 Defence - 81 Defence - 76 Defence - 77 Goaltending - 91 Goaltending - 73 Goaltending - 81 Ottawa Senators Philadelphia Flyers Pittsburg Penguins Overall - 82 Overall - 84 Overall - 78 Scoring - 76 Scoring - 79 Scoring - 73 Defence - 81 Defence - 78 Defence - 74 Goaltending - 92 Goaltending - 71 Goaltending - 82 Tampa Bay Lightning Toronto Maple Leafs Washington Capitals Overall - 79 Overall - 80 Overall - Scoring - 71 Scoring - 78 Scoring - Defence - 75 Defence - 79 Defence - Goaltending - 90 Goaltending - 79 Goaltending - ____________________________________________ |_____________Western Conference:____________| Anaheim Mighty Ducks Calgary Flames Chicago Blackhawks Overall - 81 Overall - 79 Overall - 79 Scoring - 75 Scoring - 72 Scoring - 75 Defence - 78 Defence - 78 Defence - 76 Goaltending - 90 Goaltending - 86 Goaltending - 82 Colorado Avalanche Colombus Blue Jackets Detroit Red Wings Overall - 84 Overall - 79 Overall - 84 Scoring - 79 Scoring - 75 Scoring - 79 Defence - 81 Defence - 74 Defence - 77 Goaltending - 93 Goaltending - 84 Goaltending - 97 Dallas Stars Edmonton Oilers Los Angeles Kings Overall - 88 Overall - 82 Overall - 82 Scoring - 86 Scoring - 77 Scoring - 78 Defence - 84 Defence - 78 Defence - 79 Goaltending - 93 Goaltending - 90 Goaltending - 84 Minnesota Wild Nashville Predators Phoenix Coyotes Overall - 78 Overall - 81 Overall - 82 Scoring - 72 Scoring - 76 Scoring - 79 Defence - 74 Defence - 76 Defence - 74 Goaltending - 90 Goaltending - 94 Goaltending - 82 St. Louis Blues San Jose Sharks Vancouver Canucks Overall - 83 Overall - 84 Overall - 80 Scoring - 78 Scoring - 81 Scoring - 78 Defence - 78 Defence - 81 Defence - 79 Goaltending - 90 Goaltending - 89 Goaltending - 79 =============================================== Tasklist [TASKS] =============================================== Level One Tasks: 200 Beginner;
