CALGARY - When starting defensive tackles Micah Johnson and Demonte’ Bolden went down in the regular-season finale, it was widely assumed the Calgary Stampeders would be scrambling.

But maybe what looked to be a gaping hole in the middle of their defence — one that some are worried could be exploited by a strong Saskatchewan Roughriders ground game in Sunday’s CFL West Final — isn’t such a hole after all.

Junior Turner and Etienne Legare are quiet.

Quiet enough, it seems, to be almost completely overlooked.

Turner has a combined 46 regular-season and playoff games under his belt.

Legare, who was acquired by Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel in a draft-day deal that sent the 34th overall pick in the 2013 CFL Draft to the Edmonton Eskimos, has 48 games of CFL experience.
