Default NHL's (lack of) PED policy

Is anyone else sickened by the NFL's "PED" policy? Firstly, they make drug cheating sound like someone has been away for a few weeks eating sweets (which is what PEDs sounds like to me).

Secondly, the punishments are ridiculously trivial. Peterson has just been banned for 6 games which equates to 5 weeks. The reigning Super Bowl MVP was banned for 3 weeks at the start of the season. In other sports he would still be less than half way through his ban and wouldn't even have played in the Super Bowl (and arguably his team wouldn't have progressed to the Super Bowl if he was serving a proper ban).

Sports like Athletics and Cycling get a hard time about drugs cheating, but at least they have worked very hard to give proper punishments to those caught e.g. 2 years. 2 to 5 weeks for a ban, in my opinion, is not enough to deter drugs cheating.
