-- Life without Dustin Penner
begins for the Edmonton Oilers
against the Nashville Predators
on Tuesday, and coach Tom Renney knows that's part of the business, difficult or not.
With 19 games remaining, the 30th-place Oilers have to get along without their leading goal-scorer and biggest forward in Penner, who was dealt to Los Angeles before the trade deadline Monday.
"Good to go. That's what we do," Renney said. "That's the dynamic of the game.
"Whether it's in Year 1 of a rebuild or you're in your third year and you're starting to look serious about being a contender, it doesn't matter. The bottom line is a roster is a very dynamic thing. If you get too hung up on movement here, there or anywhere, that can, as a coach, really get in your way and stifle you from doing your job.
