Those are the only players we as fans know were available. Anything else is pure speculation.

The only reason an available player isn't traded is price. Why hasn't Van traded Lou? Because no GM is willing to pay the price to acquire him. So your complaint is apparently that Bowman wasn't willing to overpay for a player that 28 other teams deemed to costly.

By overpaying. That's not how a successful organization works. If you want to see what happens to a team when the GM routinely overpays for players go look at the Sharks. Mediocre team now, an aging core, and no prospect help coming.

Pure speculation. For all we know other teams just don't think very highly of guys like Morin and Pirri.

Reality. Weiss is injured. The Stars are 1 point out of the playoffs (and GM Joe doesn't trade with the West) so Roy is a no go. Washington is trying to resign Ribs and are only 4 points out of the playoffs. Other than that what 2C's are available?
