That will be like 10% against real life opponents.
You can change the passing system to be one button press rather than hold for power (in every mode but online and HUT mode, it looks like).

Also, for faceoffs, it's kind of like rock-paper-scissors. A back hand draw will always beat forehand draw. A forehand draw will always beat a tie up move, and a tie up move will always beat a backhand draw. I'm still trying to figure out how the stick lift move before you draw back fits in. Seems like it's a way to go against that order if your player has a better faceoff rating.
