I finally found out how to link directly to a node on cpan like this [mod://Email::Stuffer]. When searching Perlmonks for how to link to CPAN modules, the node I always landed on before, How do I link to modules on CPAN?, shows how to link to a cpan search for the module which requires another click to get to the module. The node has another link to What shortcuts can I use for linking to other information? but that always seemed irrelevant since I wanted to link to cpan not "other information".
Would it make sense to change [cpan://Net::Syslog] to [mod://Net::Syslog] and modify the text to the other node such as "For more information about linking to CPAN go to What shortcuts can I use for linking to other information?."
