If me, I'd only remove obviously dead or dying leaves at this point.
If you had a good crop last year, those plants would perhaps be in their 2nd or 3rd year ?
As said, try and see which have a good strong crown ( that should become more obvious in a month or 2 ) and hang on to them - at least for this coming year.
Come the warmer weather, watch for runners and save them for next year. Easiest way to do that is to leave them attached to the parent plant but put them in a small pot. Once they've rooted you can snip them off and you have a new Strawb to plant out.
Strawberries are one of the easiest crops to grow - sometimes the suggested faffing about is really not necessary.
Other posters may well have more/better advice - either way, nowt much is likely to happen in the next few weeks so relax and look forward to some good fruit this year
