I think it affects the appreciation of his art so that fans value him less. They shouldn't. He is a Master.
I'd rank Colan with Kirby as artists who can come through terrible inking relatively unscathed. Colan uses a lot of black and both artists styles are quite bold so that, even with some of the terrible inkers inflicted on them, some of the quality remains on the page. It's artists with a subtler style that suffer most from bad inking, in my opinion.
I agree that, because he was so good, it was a terrible waste that its potential was ruined by awful inkers, but the end result wasn't often actively bad.

The second issue in he is drawing a physically believable Cap but conveying that Cap's body inhabit by another mind.
