When you're viewing your lineup in HUT, you can press cn_RSu to view each player's synergy style type. You can also press cn_Y to view Synergy Details which will show you which styles you currently have at least one player in and which players have each style. What you're trying to do is get every player in your lineup (all 4 offensive lines, all 3 defensive lines, and both goalies) to have an active synergy style by meeting the minimum required number of players for each synergy style type. Each synergy style has a minimum number of players that need to be on the team for it to activate. For example, Faceoff Master needs 4 players to become active. Others may take 6 or 8 before becoming active. You can have more than the minimum number of players for each synergy and it will still be active for everyone that has it.

You will likely be most limited on goalie styles so try to pick a style that two of your goalies share and that you also have some skaters with that style. For me that ended up being It's a Trap (T). There are 18 different synergy styles so this will depend on which cards you have and what synergy styles are on them. You can search your collection by Synergy Style when doing substitutions and you can place people out of position as well if you have to.

I would recommend going for no more than 4 styles unless you have enough players to do five different 4-player styles or if you have enough for the 3-player styles. Again, the hard part there will be matching up with the goalie styles you have available. I have about 13 goalies and only 4 styles among them. Here are the four synergy styles I went for when I got the achievement along with the minimum number of players for each.

Faceoff Master (FM) - 4 players
Relentless Forecheck (RF) - 4 players
Heavy Hitter (HH) - 4 players (I had 6)
It's a Trap (T) - 6 players

Other possible synergy styles are:
Cycle Game (CG) - 6 players
Defensively Responsible (DR) - 4 players
Dirty Dangler (DD) - 4 players
Iron Shins (IS) - 4 players
Long Range Bombers (B) - 8 players
Net Front Presence (NP) - 3 players
Offensive Juggernaut (OJ) - 3 players
One-timer Efficiency (1T) - 8 players
Passing Playmaker (PP) - 4 players
Speedsters (S) - 4 players
Tape To Tape (TT) - 6 players
Team Shot Blocking (SB) - 6 players
Team Wheel (TW) - 8 players
Wicked Wristers (WW) - 4 players

Once all your offensive lines, defensive lines, and goalies all have an active style (it will turn green instead of gray), the achievement will pop.
