If pages rank well, then those pages are not a Panda problem - by definition.
Google traditionally uses the word "thin" to mean content reproduced from a manufacturer or affiliate xml feed. They described Panda as targeting "shallow" content. Not the same thing at all. 2000 words can still be shallow. Content not duplicated anywhere else can still be shallow. A page that serves a useful function is not shallow, even if it only has 30 words total.
If you put content online merely to try to rank for certain query terms, then you might have shallow content - and it may not be "thin" at all.
