I voted too harsh, not because he doesn't deserve 25 games, but because 25 is a value, like money.
You find the value of something by comparing it to similar things. The value of your home or car is assessed by comparables.
There is a market value and it depends on what people will pay, or, in this case, what comparable infractions have received.
The non-suspension of Weber happened early on, and therefore set the tone of the playoff suspension value for this round of the playoffs (thus being a perfectly acceptable conversation topic).
The post-headshot era is looking to this year for setting a tone. The tone has been more of an arpeggio.
