Why do hockey players get thrown out of the faceoff circle?

If a player is not in position because he is giving instructions to his teammates or for any other reason, the official drops the puck anyway. If the player is in the circle, but doesn't have his skates in the proper position and is at an angle, he is tossed from the faceoff circle and a teammate must take the faceoff.
