Until we actually make the playoffs would be my bet.
About Lehtonen; if Atlanta is out of the running by the deadline or there-abouts, what could it possibly hurt to bring him up? Let him get a little taste of the NHL, a feeling of what it will be like. Don't play him every game obviously, but give him a couple opportunities. And yes, it would be somewhat of a PR move. I have to ask, why is that a bad thing? Us fans get to see a glimpse of the future, goodness knows we need all the hope we can get.
I highly doubt DW would hijack the Wolves playoff hopes just to see Lehtonen play some games in Atlanta. Lehtonen's schedule can be juggled to play a couple games in the bigs, without hurting Chicago and/or wearing him out. It's been done before.
