Concern about his lack of goals is the same as Kessel. He's well positioned to start scoring in bunches when he inevitably starts hitting the back of the net again. Pacioretty is rarely going to get no goals on 28 shots. He should be at about 3 right now but the mathamatics of goal scoring favour random streaks being the norm.
^^That’s^^ roughly how I see it; the panic button is light-years away.

That said, he does look weak in his 1 vs 1 battles and he often shoot right in the goalie’s chest. Also, he seems to have lost his "killer instinct" when he enters the slot.
