Start a new Be A Pro and create your skater however you feel (not goalie, I chose Sniper and RW), for draft select a team, and pick a good team that will most likely make the playoffs on their own (I chose Washington). For difficulty select rookie, and adjust the sliders in the Settings cn_LT Gameplay Settings to your favour, also make sure Be A Pro Simulating Penalty is OFF. Play all your pre-season games making sure to get a pile of goals and assists, this will secure yourself a spot on the NHL team roster starting the season. Now, sim the first 2 periods of your first 10 games (Click the game on the Be A Pro Hub, click simulate, push cn_A to sim period 1, than again to sim period 2) playing the 3rd period (after siming the first 2 periods push cn_start to intervene) and rack up some more goals/assist. Save your game here if you'd like in case something goes wrong during the next step.
Now go to calendar, and sim the entire rest of the regular season. You will go up and down on the line-up but shouldn't get dropped to the minors. (If by some odd chance you do, exit without saving, re-load your game, sim until you see your player drop a line or 2, then play the 3rd period of your next 5 games).
When you get to the playoffs and you're still in the main lineup, save again, just in case. If your team did not make the playoffs, reload the first save and re-sim until they do.
Now, completely sim the first 3 games of your first series, paying attention to your Wins/Losses. If at any point in a series, your team loses 3 games, play the 3rd peroid of the remaining games to make sure you do not get eliminated from the playoffs. Repeat for all 4 series. I played the 3rd period of the 4th win in the Stanley Cup Finals, just because, but I don't think simming that game would effect winning this achievement.
This takes a bit of time, but is better than playing every game.
