    75% of the roots? Wow, I'm no expert, but that sounds really bad.

    Personally, I always do a small "test tug" to see if the dead leaf will come off easy. If its stubborn, then just take a small pair of scissors and cut it off as close as you can without risking other healthy leaves or the sweet, chewy center of the plant. After a few days you can try to get that last bit off, but only when its ready to.
    Some random words.

    I rarely pull blackened traps off, for the reason you just described. When they get black, I snip them off.

    ON a positive note- For the one you pulled off a leaf cutting will have near 100% striking rate since it has some roots.

    For the rest of the plant, it should be ok after roots grow back, try using some superthrive if you have any laying around.
