Is Lukas Sedlak a big piece to the Columbus Blue Jackets' team going forward. How about Seth Jones' burgeoning skills as a leader? And where does head coach John Tortorella say Cam Atkinson needs to improve?

We now have some more answers to those questions about the Blue Jackets' team as Tortorella sat down for part three of a three-part interview with team TV voice Jeff Rimer. The video was released today through the Blue Jackets' team accounts.

In the interview, Tortorella raves about Zach Werenski ("ready to take off") and his defensive partner Jones ("growing into a leader") and also gives his thoughts on where Atkinson and Alexander Wennberg can keep getting better. 

Tortorella also rehashes Sergei Bobrovsky's 2016-17 season and has positive things to say about Sedlak, who he says the team missed during its five-game playoff appearance vs. Pittsburgh.
