NHL 2001

Be a Leader
First, enter the "edit lines" section after creating a player (for instance, yourself!). Then scratch the captain and the assistiant captain of the team. You must be a good player and and be rough in sprits. Then put yourself in the first line as the center. If you followed the procedures, you'll lead the team out of the locker room at the start of the game and be the captain!

Minor League Players:
Some players now in the NHL spent the past year in the minors or as a free agent. EA Sports didn't overlook this aspect of the league. There are some players that aren't on any roster that will have stats available if you create them. Some of them may have an incorrect jersey number, handedness, or position on the game, which you can easily fix in the Create Player menu. Here are some of the players I've found:

Terry Virtue, New York Rangers/Hartford Wolf Pack defenseman

No Goalie:
During a game, press the Start Button to pause the game. Select Controller Setup, now move your controller over to the other team. Return to the previous menu and select your opposing teams options. Next, select Team Options. Where it says Goalie Status, you can elect to pull the goalie. Return to the Previous menu again and go back into Controller Setup and move your Controller back over to your original team. When you return to the game the other team will have no Goalie. If you want to restore the goalie to the other team, simply repeat all of these steps and elect to return the Goalie to the Net.
