The biggest two are whether the opposing team is on the guy with/getting the puck. Usually a defenceman going to get the puck in his end, whether he has a forechecker or not chasing him.
"TIME" - No one close by, take your time with the puck.
"MAN" or "MAN ON" - There's someone right on his tail.
There's others too:
"POINT" - In offensive zone, defenceman is open on the point and looking for the pass.
"WALL" - Look for the pass further up the wall.
Be careful, some teams will yell false commands at yours. So make sure to take a look or use the guy's name.
