Win the Vezina Trophy in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

The Vezina Trophy is awarded to the best goalie during the regular season. You will want to have the most wins, highest save %, and lowest GAA to be guaranteed this trophy. This one could be annoying if you donít enjoy playing as goalie. To start off we are going to edit the rosters. Put all the Legends on the team of your choice (let's use Detroit for example). Now you are going to take all the goalies from your team (Detroit) and swap them out for goalies from the DEL league with 40 or 50 overalls (DO NOT SWAP WITH PLAYERS FROM THE FREE AGENTS). You are going to do the same thing with the goalies from the AHL affiliate (Grand Rapid Griffins). This makes it so you are the "best" goalie in your teams system and you shouldn't get randomly sent down to the AHL.

Now start Be A Pro as a goalie on the team we just modified. In the preseason, play the first period of the first 2 games. This should make you set for the role as starter in the regular season. Once you make it to the regular season, make sure you SAVE THE GAME

My rule while going for this, was to NEVER allow more than 2 goals in a game. So for the first game of the season, start the game and play for about 5 minutes and then quit. The game will autosim the rest of it and if your team won and the other team scored 2 goals or less, then SAVE THE GAME. Now you should be able to sim the next 2-3 games without playing at all. Just do 1 game at a time and if the other team scored more than 2 goals, reload your last save. Make sure you are saving after every successful game. If you haven't played in the past 3 games or so, the coach will tell you he is not giving you as many starts. THIS IS BAD so you are going to need to reload your last save and play that game. The good news is that you don't need play the whole game, just hang around for 5-10 minutes and then quit. Keep doing this process of simulating 1 game at a time and only saving when you have good stats. I would recommend alternating save slots encase you need to fallback on an older one. As long as you have the best GAA and SV%, you should win the Vezina. But you should also shoot for the most wins. This can be a long process but at least you don't have to actually play as goalie.

My stats when I won it.
70GP / 62 Wins / 1 Loss / 1OTL
1.26GAA / 94.91 Sv% / 8 Shutouts

5 goalies had more shutouts than me (Carey Price had 12) but with all the other stats I was able to win the Vezina.
How do you edit the rosters?
