After you create your player;

- Start in the Memorial Cup and choose a difficultly you're comfortable at - All Star and Superstar have become much harder in the last 2 years.
- You should get drafted in round 1 or 2 to be safe.
- Make your team out of pre-season by playing the games and getting points.
Now, once you're on the team Simulate every 2-3 games but play the 3rd and get some points. This keeps your EXP high, enough to stay in the lineup. I got sent down once (this might just happen regardless of how well you're doing) but it wasn't long until I was back up in the bigs.
At around the Trade Deadline keep an eye out on how well your team is doing. From here on out you may have to manipulate the wins by sim/save/quitting or if you're lucky, you got drafted to a contender already. If you want to push it, you can try simming from here to the playoffs but make sure you save first.

Once you're in the playoffs, sim/save every time you string together a couple wins. Then, when you're in the 4th Round (Finals) play the Cup clinching game just to be safe. After the game is over you should unlock it once your GM sends you a message/notification saying how proud he is, etc.

SergeGTSI won the first round 4-2. And then the next screen said sim to next season, and showed that the Capitals won. What did I do wrong?

PR0MOTEI would revert (load) to one of the older saves (it will automatically make a few backups) and try again, making sure you are not sent down, maybe play a few playoff game in round one. Hope this works for you!

SergeGTSI will try it. I played all but one game in Round 1 of the playoffs.

I will see if I can figure out how to load one of the saves.

SergeGTS@PR0MOTE, so I was able to load an old save, and win the series 4-2 again (round 1).

But when it gets to the main screen the top left box only says "Sim to Next Season"

*** Edit ***
I found this and will try tonight/tomorrow

Simming to the next day in the calendar worked like a charm!
