I'm not sure what the policy is at your rink, but the league I play in in Hackensack, NJ has 8+ skill divisions and if you sign up as an individual they only allow you to play in either D6 or D8. I played college club hockey, really nothing special at all, but I know how to play, and I was without a doubt a ringer in both D6 and D8. But, I had no choice in the matter because all of the teams in the higher divisions have been playing together for years and weren't looking to add free agents.
I've luckily been able to sign on with an established team in a division more suitable to my skill level since then, but I thought I'd throw this alternate perspective out there because not all "ringers" are the same.
