Exactly. The timing of it may hurt some players (see: Markus Naslund), but overall it's how players play relative to their current competition. X number of players get inducted every year, so 10 years from now you're not going to start leaving out the retiring players to induct guys from 20-30 years ago.
Really the only place current players will be potentially hurt is in all-time best player ratings, but that's pretty much meaningless.
