This is the last version my ROM edit from pixelpuck.com (RIP) around 2013. There is an NHL91.com ROM on the master list, however, I believe this may be from the Season 2 draft, when @angryjay93 beat @Freydey in 5 games. Here are some way-back pics of the blog from season 2:
Okay, as to the new update from around 2013, here are the biggest changes:
Scanned media guide photos from 90-91 for every player card.
Remastered sprite fields two colors for helmets and one for sleeve piping for the most accurate uniforms possible [HUDB].
Meticulously rated, NHL players from after the 90-91 trade deadline, completely overhauled from the original ROM edit.
26 man rosters: 15 forwards, 8 defensemen, and 3 goalies.
Team ratings based on team performance (home PTS %), road warrior rating (away PTS %), special teams (PP% – PPGF, and PK% – PKGAA), offensive prowess (GF/G and GF), defensive stoutness (GAA) [EARE].
New control read method. Goalie control is now mapped to the (Y) button. Controls must be calibrated to the 6 button configuration to use this feature. [SpritesMind]
Refined system that narrows attribute increments for more accurate player ratings.
NHL91 splash screens.
NHL91 logo for the Zamboni and team selection.
NHL91 timer logo.
90-91 crease and improved nets.
Checking – speed burst multiplier adjustment.
Adjusted fatigue meters.
Hot – cold ratings fix.
Weight bug fix.
Assist bug fix.
Puck-drop organ tunes have been matched to the correct teams
A longer, louder, different sounding goal horn that more closely resembles the ones used in current NHL arenas [YT].

No one in the hockey world knows who Gary Bettman is and everyone is thankful
Also, a bunch of other stuff happened and it was all pretty cool since it was the 90s'
Speed burst is cut in 1/2. You really have to line up your checks and breakaways are harder to chase down if you get caught pinching
Ratings are more akin to EA's current games, and as a result the game plays better with line changes
Endurance is greatly reduced as well, one or two scoring chances and you'll need to go for a change or your line will be out of gas, which forces you to roll lines
