OTTAWA - Silver isn't as good as gold to Erik Karlsson.

The Ottawa Senators defenceman had a great Olympic tournament but he found the 3-0 loss to Canada Sunday tough to take. Before he headed home, he was asked what having the silver medal was worth to him.

"You will see when I put it out on eBay," Karlsson told the Olympic news service.

We're pretty sure he was kidding. Karlsson was headed back to Ottawa Sunday night aboard one of the three charters provided by the NHL.
