It is by far easier to get this in your first game!!! I cannot stress that enough!!! And yes this achievement is still obtainable after servers closed!!! The good news is hardly any one plays this, the bad new the AI likes to screw things up. Grab a boosting partner who either A) already has this achievement or B) has a dummy account. Here's a list of things that will help in grading system. (listed in what I think is least helpful to most helpful)

1) Winning Face offs (as Center)
2) Good Pass
3) Big Hits
4) Assist
5) Goals
6) Short Handed Goals/Assist

Negatives include

1) Loosing Face offs
2) Intercepted Passes
3) Goals against (why both players shouldn't try in the same game)
4) Penalties (unconfirmed)

Now here's the easy trick. While player 1 has the puck players 2 holds LT+RT+Back which pulls the goalie giving easy Empty Net Goals/Assist to player 1 (Thanks to New Era Yaz67 for posting this on x360a). Since its a 5 on 6 goal it seems to boost up your grade faster than a regular goal. You can easily have an A+ ranking by the middle of the 2nd period and then hold the puck til game ends. If you do manage to fall bellow A+ simply score another goal.

Unfortunately the more games with bad Grades you played the more A+ games you will need to get average up, but this can be done in as many as 1 game to newcomers. Ironically the Achievement seems to unlock when your Team Skill Grade is at an overall B+ or better (both Neudog and I finished with this rating when it unlocked).

P.S. If the achievement does not unlock at the end of the game, exit out and start a new team play game. Achievement should pop as long as you have a B+ to A+ rating during the lobby (can check by pressing start while waiting for new game.)
