I assumed he meant Pycelle since he mentioned he'd handed Ned the "hand of the king".
Barristan actually confused me. I couldn't remember who that guy was while I was watching, and I don't think they even said his name. That was one omission I probably would have found a way to fit in, sort of how they had Tyrion name Commander Mormont.
Although maybe they did and I missed it...
