NHL 2004 Cheats
Getting easy goals
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 works better when two players are playing the game on the same team, so that other person can distract the goalie.
Getting good players
When you are 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.
Begin your dynasty and earn points by scoring goals, hitting, assists etc...Then go to features and buy cards. In some of those cards you will get cheats u can use in the game. Collect all the cards. The greater the degree of difficulty the more points you will earn.
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.
Duplicate a player
Go to My NHL then go to 'Create Player'. Submit the name of a current player in the Players last name and first name slots, and the game will say "There is a player in the database with that name. Would you like to create a player with the same information?"
