The james Norris Trophy is for top defencemen. What you need to do is create a New be a pro and select defense as your position. Now you go through the grind of playing through your first season. ( Id skip the AHL portion) and get drafted to an NHL team right away.
PLAY YOUR POSITION! Block shots, poke check for sure, but when you have the puck dont be afraid to go on the offesive, "Bobby orr it up" a few times a game. Get a good lead, then SIM the remainder of the game.
(psssst, you dont have to win every game, just make the playoffs)
What I do is play a game, rack up the points in the first 4-5 minutes (sliders ajusted ofcourse) then SIM the rest of the game, then SIM 2, 3, 4 games in a row (to help eat up the season). Then play another 4-5 minutes, get points. Rinse repeat.
The James Norris Trophy, again, is for top defensemen, people will argue that you need to block 100s of shots and blah blah blah, its all about the points! (a la Erik Karlson, Nick Lidstrom Etc Etc) If you want the Selke trophy block shot and have a high +/- .
This one, get over 100+ points, no other D man will come close
If you negative vote, fine. But this is how its done
