To leave the Olympics with a medal is a dream come true for most athletes. For one example, just go watch how the USA four-man bobsled team reacted to winning a bronze medal in Sochi even after winning gold in Vancouver. It's a huge deal and the medal gives the athletes something tangible to hold onto forever to remember it.

Erik Karlsson is not one of those athletes. You hear the idea of Gold or Bust at the Olympics and Karlsson seems set on sticking to that mantra. He picked up a silver medal with Sweden after losing to Canada in the final but the Senators defenseman doesn't seem to keen on it.

From Senators Extra's James Gordon.

According to Olympic News Service, this is what he had to say when asked what his silver medal meant to him: "You will see when I put it out on eBay."

Karlsson went on to say that the Swedes' accomplishment will be something to look back on with pride one day, but he's just not there yet.

Here's an idea; before Karlsson puts the medal on eBay, maybe he should offer it up to Swedish teammate Nicklas Backstrom, whose silver medal is being held right now by the IIHF after he tested positive for a banned substance ... that came from allergy medication.
