It would seem that IF the NHL resumes, all indications point to 24-team tournament.

I figure this has to be the time the Leafs pull it off, because it would have to be some far-fetched tournament so people can call into question the legitimacy of it all.

Meh.  No one has any advantage in this type of format, plus I'd argue it would be even harder as more teams are involved.

So how are they choosing the 24? Best win percentage?

It's very stupid how all the reserve players are distancing and wearing masks in the stands while the first teamers and rubbing sweaty bodies on the pitch.

I guess they must never practice together, eh? Very, very stupid.

Honestly surprised the reserves are even there.

Exactly it is all for show. They'll be sat in the same changing room cramped up together. However if all the players are clean from the virus, and no one in the area has the virus. They won't get it, so there is no need to distance or wear masks anyway.

Canada-US border closed until June 21. Unlikely teams will be able to start preparing for a return to play prior to that.

Early-mid July looking like the most optimistic return date.

Whats the point, just messes up the start of the next season.

Money.

They'll push back the start of next season and play into July if they have to.

They moan about a compressed schedule as it is.

The NHLPA will put up a decent fight I think.

They might...but this is a business.  Pay to play.  If there's no money coming in, they can't expect a paycheque.
