TORONTO — Tim Gleason wouldn't say what he did with his silver medal but don't get the wrong idea. He didn't throw it away in disgust.
"It's a secret," he said today, smiling. "It's stored away."
The Canes defenseman looked glum and angry Sunday when Team USA was awarded the silver medals after the 3-2 overtime loss to Canada in Vancouver. It was almost as if he didn't want to lean over and have the medal placed around his neck, then reluctantly agreed.
"It was kind of like, 'Geez,'" he said. "We went that far. We knew there were no expectations, but at the same time you want to win the gold medal.
