I try to get "twitchy." Just keep jerking your hands a little bit, that seems to help when it is actually time to draw, you're already making the movement. Don't be too stationary. If something works, keep doing it until they stop you. If whatever you're doing doesn't work, change it up.

Have more than one faceoff move - draw back on your backhand, draw back on your forehand, tie up the other guy's stick by pinning it below yours, or try lifting it. One move that works well against guys that draw the puck back is to ignore the puck and put your stick behind theirs, to where they're drawing, so they draw the puck onto your stick, and then you can just win it clean.
