The NHL wants McGeough telling the referees which calls are good or bad?
Now at least I know where this dumb glove on the faceoff=penalty thing came from. McGeough was so preoccupied with the idea that a guy might win a faceoff with a glove that he hallucinated them while he was awake. And that was one of his least horrible practices.
Edit: Watch this whole video. Tim Peel looks like he just witnessed a traffic fatality and McGeough's yelling at the arena's timekeeper because "how dare the video crew show my botched call on the jumbotron." Because, you know, replays shouldn't be shown during a stoppage and that's totally the timekeeper's fault.
This is what I thought of immediately after reading this. Can't believe this moron is leading the charge.

No ****. Explains a lot. How could they possibly hire the guy to supervise other refs? Is that a union thing? Dear god. The fact that so many know him by name should tell you that he is unfit for the job. Every fanbase has been burned by McGeough at least once.
Best part is, during the fan celebration over his pending retirement, McGeough puts Lidstrom in the box on a Rafalski high stick and the Red Wings get scored on because their best PKer is in the box on a botched call.
Yeah, just the worst ref ever and they put him in charge. And surprise, surprise we have the worst reffing this year. What a joke.
It's not just that he was incompetent at reacting quickly enough but can think through the situation afterward in this role, he is incompetent at the whole job and is always so emphatic that he's right and has to be in the spotlight. WORST CHOICE EVER!
Yeah, it was pointed out on the Oilers board that he was listed as supervisor of officials for the Kings - Oilers game a couple weeks ago, where it was nationally broadcast on TSN to a country of hockey fans saying WTF.
