    Bodger adds veteran presence to young Canucks

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Doug Bodger is playing for his fifth team in the last five years. He wasn't exactly the object of a frenzied bidding war as an unrestricted free agent this off-season.
     In assessing his options, the 33-year-old rearguard instructed his agent Steve Bartlett to get him close to his off-season home on Vancouver Island. The Canucks offered him $700,000 US.
     Bodger, who made $1.3 million in Los Angeles last season, winced slightly, then figured, "What the hell. It beats retirement."
     "I took a pay cut but, as (Bartlett said), 'Ask your neighbours. That's still pretty good money,"' Bodger told the Vancouver Province.
     Bodger has added much needed experience to a blue-line missing unsigned free agents Ed Jovanovski and Adrian Aucoin.
     "Let's not get carried away here," Bodger said. "I think I can help. But I'm not a saviour."
