NHL 14: HUT Team Management
Here is where all of your lineup management is done. Use the Right Trigger and Left Trigger to toggle through all of your team’s lines.
Pressing the A button on any item brings up a full list of item options available. The left panel displays an overview of your team’s Star Ratin, Salary and Chemistry ratings.
The dock at the bottom displays players on your Scratched Roster. The Scratched Roster tab allows for easy movement in and out of your starting lineup.
The multiple squad feature allows you to make different lineups that you can use at any time. Great for entering tournaments or playing against friends.
Chemistry is broken up into three areas – Position, Familiarity, and Line Mix.
Position – A player playing in his proper position will get the best chemistry.
Familiarity – Playing with teammates from the same league or the same team helps your chemistry.
Line Mix – How well players will play with each other depending on their player type. For Example, 3 Enforcers as a forward group would have poor chemistry. A Sniper-Playmaker-Power Forward would have great chemistry. There are many combinations so play with your lineup to find good ones.
Have you ever wished a player played LW instead of C to help your team’s chemistry?
Apply a Change Position item to the player you want changed. This change is permanent, so the only way to change him back will be to use another Change Position item.
Injuries are a big part of hockey. Players can get injured but you can get Healing items to help manage those injuries to your important players. There are three types of injuries: Torso, Arms and Leg injuries. Find healing items to heal the proper injury and you can have your player back in the lineup earlier than anticipated. Otherwise, you will have to find someone to replace that player in your lineup while he sits out on your scratched roster, for the amount of games stated on his item, while injured.
