How does your league weed out ringers?

The 6 team league that myself and the other captains run is about to enter it's third season and we are very sensitive about ringers. Our teams are balanced by the captains every season and the thing we focus on the most is parity. If one team is really struggling and another team is dominating then more than likely at the end of the season a couple better players from the dominant team will be moved to the struggling team and vice versa.
Also every player that enters our league must fill out survey about their hockey past and go through an evaluation skate before they can be added to the league. Our league is very popular and our waiting list is long so we have no problem telling players to hit the road as we always have people to replace them.
Last year we had to ask a player to leave b/c he was too good and just this past Sunday at our eval we did not allow 2 guys to enter the league b/c they were simply too good.
We are fortunate that we have complete control over our league though and I know that not everyone can say that.
