    This may be an easier way, especially if you have 2 people working toward their card.

    Both players play LW (no faceoffs, even on PK), and both keep pulling their goalie (LB+Back). Make sure both players get 1 goal, 1 assist, although we occasionally settled for 2 goals, or just 1 point.

    Other than that, stay in position the best you can, get hits when you're sure you won't get a penalty, and try your best not to turnover the puck.

    Quit every game after 5 minutes, or once each player has their points. Doing this method kept me going back and forth between B+/A- overall, and went by very quick.

    Create a game in OTP lobby, and have your friend quickly join. Each take one side and ready up. This will start the game, hopefully before anyone else gets in. One person plays goalie, the other forward. If you're good on the face-off take center, but otherwise take a wing so as not to lose team stats by losing the face off. The forward should try to concentrate on not giving the puck away and position, poke check/hit if possible. The person playing G moves out of the net, allowing the other to score 3 quick goals (2 and 1 assist is ok as well). Once the game hits the 5 minutes played mark and the forward has 3 points, the goalie quits. The forward's stats are boosted, and he gets credit for the win/game played as long as it's after 5 minutes. The other person's goalie stats take a hit, but this doesn't affect their forward. Basically, you're dropping your goalie, but raising your forward, which is all you need. I brought my friend up from B- to A- and his card within about 25 games. This is by far the quickest way I've found to boost stats, and speed up games played as well. Your DNF doesn't seem to track OTP games, as mine still says 4% (which is from Ranked vs. games). 8)

    This achievement is no longer available. Original solution:


    From http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/nhl-09/guide/

    Unlocks after you completed all online cards. Just try to play as many games as possible with your team and perform well. You can also check your requirements for each Hockey League rank/card from "Main Menu > Performance tracker," and by pressing RB to switch from offline to online ranks.

    The requirement you need to get the online Legend Card is an A- and 150 games. The previous cards will unlock as long as you play games and maintain at least an A-.

    Hillenmeyer1I have a question. Is this done through joining a "quick otp" game. And when I am playing should it be my created character because i find i keep ending up playing nhlers on the selected team instead. thanks
