Get traded to another team in Be A Pro with a Created Pro  

You can't request a trade in your first Be A Pro season. The coach will basically tell you that a washing machine is worth more than your trade value. So after you play through a season to get some of the other trophies, sign a new contract (preferably the smallest cap hit so you are easier to trade) and simulate to the start of the regular season. You can now request a trade. You will still need to play some games to keep your point production up. I had to make it almost halfway through the season before I finally got traded. The first time I got traded, the achievement didn't unlock so I tried again and it still didn't unlock. I had to start a new Be A Pro, and get traded on that save for the achievement to finally unlock. And if you get demoted to the AHL, then get traded, it doesn't unlock either and that could be one of the causes for the achievement being glitchy.
If the achievement seems glitched, start a brand new Be A Pro career and DO NOT request a trade until the 2nd regular season has started. The achievement should unlock properly now.

play a couple of games for the team you're on... play good, get lots of points... then go into the "My Pro" menu in your Be A Pro Career and click on "Request Trade" you will either get a message of "you're not high enough on the market and blah blah blah so prove yourself more" OR "blah blah blah something something we'll put you on the trading block" and hope that someone tries to pick you up. so far, it's the only way i know possible. i hope that helped!!

im not sure... maybe we need to play a full season. i got about 20 games in & since i asked him to trade me, he told me he was giving me a demotion & put me on the 2nd line instead of the first. i dont know... maybe it's just that he dont want to trade us... but this sucks cause i got drafted by Carolina & i dont want to play for them lol

I asked for trade and they sent me to another team but no achievement. I think you have to play very bad and simulate games and they trade you away because you suck.

Quick notes:

You can't start a BAP and request a trade right away. Play 1 really good season, win some of the awards (which are also achievements) win the Cup (another achievement) and then request a trade.

DO NOT request a trade during the off-season. Even if you get traded, the achievement WILL NOT pop up. SIM the whole off-season after your 1st season. Then play 1 or 2 games to start the next season and then request a trade. TO GET THE ACHIEVEMENT YOU HAVE TO BE TRADED DURING THE REGULAR SEASON!

That's fu**ing bullsh*t. I've simmed/played THREE FULL SEASONS, averaged about 25-30 goals per year, signed a new contract then tried to ask for a trade a few games into my 4th year.. told my value isn't high enough. F*** it.

Well it all started nicely, I got drafted by Detroit in first round. First year went amazing, I played in the first line with Datsyuk and Zetterberg. I got good amount of points too. We won the cup. And then contract week came and I noticed that Filppula didin't get new contract by the Wings, I liked that because I should get bigger role in the team. After that I saw that Datsyuk got traded to Calgary for first round pick, I was like wtf. Then season started and I went to watch our lines and what did I saw: me in the first line with zetterberg and franzen all other players are like 60 to 78 overalls except kronwall, our goalie is mrazek 76 overall, I dont know what happened to howard. I asked to get traded (Im leading scorer of league, 32 goals before allstar -break) and the GM said that I

it's funny how I scored 89 goals and still the GM consider me less valuable than a kitchen sink... this feature of the game is messed up (and not in a good way)

I'm about to say fuck this achievement. Absolutely no hope of getting it.

This "feature" is real craptastic. In my first season I won the cup, every trophy I could as a center, 201 goals, and 195 assists. I asked for a trade on the day of the first regular season game of my 2nd season and it still says I am not worth anything. I wish they fixed this so we could try and work the system to play for our favorite teams.
